The Best Food Pairings for Non-Alcoholic Cider This Year (2023)

When it comes to non-alcoholic cider, especially Zeffer 0% apple cider, the refreshing blend of fresh Hawke's Bay apples makes it an ideal beverage for various occasions. But the experience doesn't have to end with a sip. Here are the six best food pairings for non-alcoholic cider.

1. Cheese Board
When you think of pairings, a cheese board is almost always a top contender. The creaminess of cheese like Brie or Gouda brings out the fruity notes of apple-based ciders. Meanwhile, hard cheese like Manchego balances out the acidity, making each bite and sip a delightful event.

2. Spicy BBQ Ribs
Spice and cider are a match made in heaven. The effervescence of non-alcoholic cider can help cleanse your palate, cutting through the richness of the BBQ sauce and the spicy ribs. Try a spicy BBQ rib dish with a cold glass of Zeffer 0% apple cider and feel the synergy of flavors unfold.

3. Sushi
Non-alcoholic cider's sweet undertones can be a great companion to the umami and saltiness in sushi. Cider complements the delicate flavors and even helps cut through the richness of any accompanying avocado or creamy sauces.

4. Poultry Dishes
Poultry finds a delightful counterpart in non-alcoholic cider. The fruity notes in the cider highlight the natural flavors of the meat. This is particularly effective for grilled or roasted poultry recipes seasoned with herbs like rosemary and thyme.

5. Seafood Paella
Seafood paella with its myriad of flavors saffron, shellfish, and sometimes chorizo can be complex. A non-alcoholic cider can balance these potent tastes, lifting the seafood flavors while neutralising the oils.

6. Apple Pie
It may sound redundant, but apple cider and apple pie is a pairing that emphasises the natural affinity between the beverage and the dish. The sweetness and spiciness of apple pie and crisp apple-based cider together, taking the concept of "apple of my eye" to a whole new level.

Pairing non-alcoholic cider with the right food isn't just a culinary afterthought; it's an essential aspect of creating an enriching dining experience. From cheese boards to apple pies, the pairing possibilities are almost endless, making your next meal or gathering an event to remember. Cheers to good food and even better pairings!
